Flexo printing is a typographical printing process. The printing plate is considerably more elastic than that of letterpress. In case of flexo printing thinner fluid paint can be used and they allow good area coverage.
Flexo printing is fully rotary and suitable for medium up to high-quantity impressions. Grid patterns are depicted flawlessly and flexo printings achieve high positioning accuracy. Flexo printing labels are less lasting than silk-screen printing labels and thus rather suitable for indoor use or for labels with shorter periods of use.
If used as decorative labels flexo printing labels can be graded up with cold foil embossing.
